Took the gondola up which was fun for the kids. Great views. Nice long easy ride. Walked around up top and took great panoramic photos - wow, that view! There is a new adventure area with zip lines and a trampoline but it looked expensive and kind of a distraction from the beauty of the mountain. We hiked down Berry Picker and it was great. Even my littlest guy - 5 years old - loved it. He was tired at the end since it did take two hours. But interesting change between trees, open areas, running water, waving at folks on the gondola above, talking to other hikers, saw a marmet just laying out. Remember to take water. We took a ski pole from a barrel at the visitor center and I was glad to use it as my walking stick! We took the path that ended at vail village and kids enjoyed the pirate ship park and putting our feet in the creek right next to it. And the drink at Los Amigos was great, too!
